The HOPE Center is an advocacy and resource center for survivors of sexual and domestic violence, battered women, and abused children. Open-minded and caring volunteers are needed to answer crisis line calls, do community education at schools on violence issues, and work on numerous other projects including working with policy efforts and website update and design. The Center encourages a diverse group of volunteers, including men and women, people of color, and members of the LGBT community. Forty hours of advocacy training is provided at no cost to volunteers. Training is offered twice a year, in the fall and in the winter/spring. Applications are available from either of the program directors.
